Permeability App. (3 Cell Model)
As Per IS 3085 / DIN Standard
(Single Cell Model)
One of the durability test of concrete is to determine permeability of
water through specimen. Permeability apparatus is used for
determining the permeability of cement mortar and concrete
specimens of 15cm cubes cast in the laboratory.
The concrete permeability apparatus comprises of a brass / gunmetal
cell of Square/Round cross-section mounted on a stand and a
pressure chamber is connected to the cell through copper tubing
and T-connector mounted on the stand with sleeve packed valve and
rubber hose pipe with end connections. The cell assembly consists of
one base plate, one metal funnel and one top plate. The pressure
chamber is fitted with a pressure regulator which helps in regulating
the pressure from 0-15kg/cm sq. Gauge is for indicating the pressure
in the cell. A foot pump and a pressure tube is supplied to develop
pressure in the chamber. The apparatus is supplied with a measuring
cylinder 500cc to measure percolated quantity to water. Pressure can
also be applied; by a pressure air line or by a compressor which can
be supplied at an extra cost.
Same as above but supplied with three individual cells with stand.
Three pressure gauges for indicating pressure in each cell are
supplied apart from the main pressure gauge which indicates
